Ad Frank & the Fast Easy Women – Your Secrets Are Mine Now

November 8, 2009

ad_cd_newMy favorite new release this week? That would have to be this one by Ad Frank and the Fast Easy Women: “Your Secrets are Mine Now.”

“YSaMN” is Ad Frank’s first lp in four years. And the time and effort he and his band put into it really show, for this is surely his/their strongest, most polished, and most consistently great release to date. This is also the first Ad Frank record, I believe, to include Sarah Rabdau as one of the Fast Easy Women; and that’s a great thing too, since her sweet voice adds a lot to the mix.

Instant classics on this one include tracks like “Winterthru” (which you can hear on the band’s myspace page), “A Note on the Type,” and my two favorites, “Man on Fire,” and “The Cuddle” (the latter with especially poetic lyrics which, regrettably, the FCC would object to — another reason to buy the record yourself, I guess, since that one can’t be played on the Z).

In fact, a lot of these songs are catchy enough and smart enough to remind you of what you used to hear on commercial radio stations like WBCN — by which I mean the old WBCN — you know, back in the day when at least some of those stations assumed that their listeners were intelligent human beings as opposed to mindless consumers. Bravo to Ad Frank and the Fast Easy Women for assuming the same, even today.
